St. Anselm first opened in 2010 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and closed a while after to be reinvented as cozy, neighborhood spot to go for simple cooking.
Their cuisine is American traditional / Steakhouse, so it’s a perfect place for the meat eaters! If you’re vegetarian or vegan, so is our Founder, Fê. She ordered a pasta when she visited the place, so you’ll be able to accompany your friends.
With a rock’n’roll soundtrack in the back, you can order a few of the top dishes by Chef Yvon de Tassigny like their grilled sardines, iceberg salad, grilled eggplants, grilled steaks, pork chop, lamb saddle, mackerel, scallops, grilled potatoes, long beans and shishito peppers.
As we said above, they have a great menu for the meat eaters. If you’re Vegetarian or Vegan, options are limited, so be prepared.
They have a gorgeous full bar, with a fantastic decoration! We love the heavy wooden counter and their super cool beer taps!
Furthermore, this is a great place to come with a big group of friends, since they are able to simply join a few tables that will accommodate you all! They noise can get a little loud, but that is just the vibe of the place.
Be sure to add this neighborhood place, St Anselm, to your list!
